House Panel Grants Immunity To Gonzales Aide
This is the Democrats attempt to try
And get Monica Goodling to testify.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
The whole list of "usual suspects" has been out and about promoting George Bush's "surge" in Iraq! They've been wagging their tongues in an attempt to give war a chance! These are the same guys who put the fear of God in Americans; they threatened Weapons of Mass Destruction, an Al-Qaeda connection and nuclear weapons in Iraq! They promised flowers and song, a rapid conclusion, freedom and democracy, a peaceful Middle East, and no cost to America! They were WRONG then and they are WRONG now!

Laura Bush on The Today Show April 25, 2007:
ANN CURRY: Do you know the American people are suffering... watching [Iraq]?
LAURA BUSH: Oh, I know that very much, and, believe me, no suffers more than their president and I do when we watch this. And certainly the commander-in-chief who has asked our military to go into harm's way.
AC: What do you think the American people need to know...
LB: Well, I hope they do know the burden of worry that's on his shoulders every single day for our troops. And I think they do. I think if they don't, they're not seeing what the real responsibilities of our president are.
AC: It must be hard for you to watch him in this.
LB: It's hard. Of course, it's absolutely hard.

The Virginia Tech shootings present a dilemma for gun lovers. On the one hand, they feel bad for the families of the victims such as the mother who said she thought she would be buying her daughter's wedding dress and instead she is buying a funeral dress. And the professor who survived the Nazi holocaust only to be killed trying to save his students.
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT
The House Judiciary Committee has authorized an offer of immunity to compel testimony of former Justice Department-White House Liaison Monica Goodling, a key player in the U.S. Attorney scandal. The deal would legally prevent her from taking the Fifth before a Committee hearing as she has threatened.
Gonzales seems up a tree
In this case of D.C. muppetry.
All the strings are pulled by Karl
Underneath every smile a snarl.
But go ahead folks and place your bets
On resentment soon from his marionettes.
